...I lost an old friend today. He was an owner/trainer and he gave me my Perfect. She was his horse that he bred/trained and when she got a bone chip in her front leg at Santa Anita, he gave me a call. He was from KY originally. I always smile when I remember and fell the story of how he called me 10 years ago and in his cute KY accent said, “You still like black horses?” When I met Kenny 29 years ago at Santa Anita he knew I fell in love with this black stallion in my ex husbands barn. They were partners at rhe time.... so I told Kenny, yes I still love black horses! He said, “Well, I got this little filly and she’s yours if you want her” he gave her to me for free. He was my son, Tyler’s Godfather and he was one of the nicest, kindest and honest people I have known. We will miss you Kenny! Thanks for all the memories! Love you and Rest in Peace!
